Château Haut-Brisson, a winemaking estate in Saint-Emilion, breathes new life into the hallowed French chambres d’hôtes, converting them into a most glamorous, modern thing. There is nothing quite like awakening to a view of vineyards, watching the mist dissipate as the sun’s rays heat the morning, revealing the village of Saint-Emilion in the distance. In a winemaking region run by tradition, Château Haut-Brisson’s design-forward lodgings are utterly unique.
Within the traditional stone walls of a country house, the interior of Château Haut-Brisson is anything but. The spacious rooms feature bold design details, inspired by the flavor notes of the lauded Château Haut-Brisson Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. A striking amulet by the American glass sculptor Andy Paiko, created especially for our home, epitomizes the modern and stylish aesthetic of the place, creating an unforgettable backdrop for a sojourn in wine country. Unwind after a day of wine tasting by collapsing on a stylish velvet sofa or take a recharging rest on luxuriously soft sheets.
Château Haut-Brisson sits nestled among fabled wine estates, just south of the village of Saint-Emilion. The 20 hectares of vines undulate, flattening out at the country road leading to the house. The limestone soil of Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse and the gravelly hills of Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens result in a rich, full-bodied wine. The area requires a car to maneuver, although distances are short, whether one is looking to visit wineries or the storybook-pretty Saint Emilion.
Near Château Haut-Brisson, you’ll find our neighbors producing their very own delicious wines, and we encourage you to sign up for a tour or pop in and taste! Take the picturesque amble to Saint Emilion, a medieval cobblestone village that is impossibly charming, and impossibly full of chances to eat and drink to excess.
